On view April 1 – June 4, 2016

Education Gallery

Leroy Lamis (1925-2010) was an American sculptor, digital artist and art education known for his work in Plexiglas. Born in Iowa, Lamis taught at Indiana State University from 1961-1988, where he influenced many young sculptors. Geometry formed the basis of his sculptures from the 1960s, as he cut colored Plexiglas into cubes, stacked it in layers, and glued it together. In 1965, Lamis described his artistic process, saying, “My work has something to do with perfection, space, and contemplation.”
